Nevada Cattle Battle "Far From Over"

Tempers are a little cooler right now after a cattle dispute in Nevada.

The Bureau of Land Management says Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's cattle were grazing illegally on federal lands.

Senate majority leader Harry Reid says the issue is far from over.

"Well, it's not over. We can't have an American people that violate the law and just walk away from it, so it's not over."

Armed militia groups sided with Bundy when federal authorities showed up.

They were trying to round up Bundy's cattle.

Things nearly got violent between ranchers and law enforcement.

Bundy has asked local sheriff's deputies to take his side.

The standoff shut down a nearby highway.
